CenturyLink Supports Cybersecurity Legislation

By John F. Jones, Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Government Relations

CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) supports several cybersecurity bills—including the Protecting Cyber Networks Act (H.R. 1560), the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act  (H.R. 1731) and the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (S. 754)—that are moving through Congress.

“CenturyLink has devoted significant resources to protecting our network from cyber attacks and helping our customers improve their cyber defenses,” said CenturyLink Senior Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations John Jones. “We support efforts by Congress to enact legislation that facilitates effective, actionable sharing of critical cyber threat indicators among government and private industry partners. However, we must extend vital privacy and liability protections to Internet service providers and their customers to achieve the coordination we need between government and providers. We continue to be optimistic that Congress will pass, and the President will sign, cybersecurity legislation that achieves both of these important objectives and helps our nation better defend itself against cyber attacks.”
